Wednesday Word


Thirty-four years ago, our family purchased AM 1550 WBFJ. Although we had a very small beginning, God grew us and blessed us.  In Spring of 1991, we began believing God to open the door for an FM Station.  The opposition was insurmountable and many times we became discouraged.  We realized we were trying to make it happen in our own strength.  We had become so overwhelmed with the burden of our circumstances that we had taken our eyes off the Lord.  As a staff, we placed the FM license at the foot of the cross and cast all the care of the opposition over on the Lord.  Within two weeks the Lord granted us the victory after two years of litigation.

In December of 2015, we met with our staff to share the necessity of reducing our overhead substantially. During that uncomfortable setting the Lord gave us a word that “when tomorrow comes, the manna will be there.”  At the end of 2016, after much prayer, we decided to gift the AM 1550 to our non-profit.  It was the AM Station that helped launch WBFJ-FM in the early 1990’s.  With the decline of income, we felt like the Lord wanted us to give it back to Him and depend on Him for our total provision.

We are so grateful for our wonderful staff led by Wally and all of our amazing listeners. In this year of Jubilee and this time of reset and “Great Grace,” we are believing for many miracles and breakthroughs for you, your family and our community.  Abba Father loves us and He cares about everything that concerns us!  “Behold, I am doing a new thing!……” (Isa. 43:18-19).

So grateful for Jesus and all of you,

Phil and Jean Watson
